ARTS DISTRICT—The Springs (608 Mateo St) is already a destination we love for healthful eats, yoga, and wellness treatments, and now the venue can add shopping for organic and eco-friendly apparel, accessories, and wares to the expansive list of offerings. This Thursday the space celebrates the launch of its summer-long pop-up by M Dot Design Studio. Featuring limited edition and just-plain-cool pieces by designers like Mimot Studio and Mau (as well as M Dot's own line of apparel), the shop kicks off its stint at The Springs with a 7-10pm soiree, and you should be sure not to leave without grabbing one of the Sweet Miso Salads, which we swear is totally life changing.
WEST HOLLYWOOD—Debra Scherer can count Italian and French Vogue as past gigs, so it comes as no surprise that her latest project, paperzine The Little Squares, is chock full of fashion and cultural inspiration. This Thursday, the mag celebrates its third issue, Creative Class, with a release party at the uber artsy Church Boutique (7277 Santa Monica Blvd). From 6-10pm, join Scherer herself for a night of aesthetic wonders that includes photos by Devon Jefferson, paintings by Sarah Parker, some underground fashions, and special guest DJ sets. And of course, grab your free copy of the new issue. Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let 'em know you're stopping by.
WEST HOLLYWOOD—Summertime means one of our favorite activities—outdoor movie watching—is back in full swing and this season one of our favorite opportunities to indulge in this simple pleasure comes courtesy of Who What Wear. Every Thursday for the month of June, the style and shopping site presents Street Style Cinema, screening some fun and fashionable flicks outdoors at The Grove (189 The Grove Dr). Kick starting the series this Thursday is 80's classic comedy Troop Beverly Hills (OMG little Jenny Lewis!!!). The movies starts promptly at 8pm, but check-in starts at 6:30pm. Save yourself a spot on the lawn by heading here.
